Frank Leboeuf has launched a random attack on players and head coach for being ‘boring’ and ‘politically correct’.

The former Chelsea defender made the comment after over Championship side in the fifth round of the on Wednesday.

Leboeuf is unhappy with how Chelsea players and Pochettino are speaking to the media and would like to see the west Londoners being more authentic.

‘I think we should stop asking questions to players and coaches at the end of the game,’ Leboeuf told when asked for his views on Chelsea’s win over Leeds.

‘I know exactly what they are going to say and it’s really boring, ‘Everybody’s good, we’re going to do our best’ – those answers are so politically correct. It’s a waste of time.

‘You can be honest and say, ‘Yeah, everything was far from being good, we know we have to work’ but instead it’s, ‘Leeds are good, we worked hard, we’re going to do better’ – it’s only to please the media and fans and they’re not saying the truth.

‘When I was a player, I was able to say when we didn’t do good. Against Leeds, we should have won, because we are Chelsea. It’s not that Leeds were good, it was because we were average!’

Meanwhile, Leboeuf is hopeful that Chelsea have found their next Frank Lampard in current star Conor Gallagher, who scored a 90th-minute winner against Leeds.

‘You have to keep Gallagher, he’s the spirit of the team for me, the guy who can give them a boost,’ Leboeuf added.

‘He’s starting to get a little bit of experience and I like his presence, I like him fighting in the middle of the park.

‘I saw Frank Lampard playing for West Ham and I played against him… but he has so much weakness. I couldn’t bet on him.

‘I saw him improving his game when he came to Chelsea and grew up like crazy. And he became one of the best midfielders in the world.

‘I want to believe that Gallagher has that. We’ll see if he gets it.’
